Wrens

Welcome to the Wrens Class! 


Communication

The Wrens use variety of communication tools otherwise known as a “Total Communication” approach. This approach allows the children to be cued into everything that they do on a daily basis, which allows the children to have an understanding of their daily routine.


Organisation

The Wrens works as a class, in small groups or individually with children during the learning day.


Learning Styles

The Wrens are at the Emergent Stage of learning. We use a sensory approach with real objects and experiences


Getting Ready For Learning

Children put on Acheeva learning stations, in class chairs or on cushions, so each child is comfortable, and positioned in the best place for learning

Sign of the Week

At Kingfisher we use Signalong as a part of a Total Communication Approach, we are constantly using core vocabulary with the children to support their language development and then through each of our topics we introduce new signs and language, which extends their vocabulary further. We also have two “Signs of the Week” which helps maintain and extend key knowledge and skills of everyday vocabulary.

Each half term we will be creating a short video showcasing and demonstrating our ‘Signs of the Week’ for the current term so that you can learn the signs and further this learning at home.

Lunchtime

If your child has a school dinner, the school menus can be accessed by clicking here. For children who bring a packed lunch, please remember to provide healthy and balanced options. We are a Healthy School and will be focussing on healthy eating and how children can make healthy lifestyle choices.
